DescriptionContentsAuthors

This unique collection of international papers integrates Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) theory, research and practice. Shareholder and stakeholder concerns, as well as governance, boardroom and environmental considerations, are explored alongside an examination of the challenges facing managers in regulating and reporting CSR application. The book makes recommendations for CSR performance enhancement that are complimented by insightful enterprise and government case studies on CSR sustainability. The discussion stretches from an intellectual overview of varying sustainability perspectives to capturing the operational experiences and policy considerations of the individual manager, the enterprise and state. This is the most comprehensive discussion on CSR to date and offers conclusive comment on CSR now and in the future.
